Aust. Masterclass. Western Sydney University
TUE, 4/2/02, 2:27 p.m. - In Response To: Question for MACK re: Aust.
Masterclass. (Keyser Soze)
I will cover all of that. I've going to begin with basically saying
what I do, how and why I do it, and then let the audience choose the specific
direction of the rest of the class. I'll take questions from people, and
answer that specifically so that we are discussing the specific things
that the audience is interested in learning about.
i was just wondering if you could tell me what will be on the agenda
for your "Masterclass" in Sydney this April. I'm trying to decide whether
i can justify buying a ticket. Is it completly art-oriented or will you
also be talking about your writing and publishing? im a pretty weak artist
but i write quite a bit (music, lyrics, prose and script) and im trying
to get a small b&w comic off the ground. can't wait to meet you.

I hope you are doing well. I put a page showcasing your art in Reflections #4 (with your contact info). Reflections #4 is at the color seperator/printer now and will ship in May. I mentioned that like Andy Lee, you are one of
the certain artists that I am especially inspired or influenced by and that I'd like to see more of your work on Comic book covers. I included your contact info for publishers and editors to contact you for cover or illustration work.
I'll send you as many copies as you need. Also I mentioned you in the
acknowledgements section of my recent Dreams Hardcover collection which
features a brand new story that I did. I'll send you one of those too if
you haven't seen it.
Now that I think of it, I should have checked to make sure that your
contact info is still the same. If there is any change in your contact
info call me immediately. Otherwise, I will give you a call in the next
couple of days anyway.
what a great forum for talking to you . Hope everything is going
well . We should talk about business art and all
that Jazz. See you in the funny papers

Good to see you here. Thanks for the kind words. I had a great time
on our Stone Mountain Journey! I really enjoyed the interaction with the
I'm sure I'll see you again next time I'm in the ATL. Loved visiting
your art gallery.
Hi David: Just wanted to say it was great meeting you! I
just got back from Ft.Myers tonight--it was a long 2 weeks---while I was
making peace with my father as he lay dying---I kept thinking of when we
met the MONKS on the path--and the way Andy started laughing like a school
boy caught with his hand in the cookie jar! I'd just smile and think of
those holy men--and how there are no accidents in this world! Hope you
and Ahn like the paintings--If you and Ahn ever need a place to stay in
Atlanta---come visit---my little community is one of the coolest places
on the Planet!!

#15!!! (Benjamin Simpson)
Glad you dug it. Thanks for the comments. The colorist is Jose Villarubia.
The Andy Lee pages and the Rick Mays pages are both excellent. I'm really
proud of everyone on this book.
Thank God that other piece of **** wasn't used, you know
the one up on Marvel.com? Mack's cover looks soooo great! When I read this
at the store, I think it said that it as Jose Virrabulla (man i butchered
that) on the colors. Great issue, BTW, and I really can't wait to see the
next issue, even if that means the end of the series. Rick Mays and Andy
Lee just kicked my ass! The artw as so great this issue!
Australia! New Zealand!This month!

hi David. i hope you enjoy your stay here in oz and i can't
wait to finally meet you after all this time.
i really look forward to it. you are a big positive influence on
my life and art.
Looking forward to my Australia and New Zealand signings!

It is great to see the comics community come thru for each other like
this. Though the LPC thing put a major crimp in the cash flow of some of
your favorite comic book publishers, it looks like we are not going to
let it pull anyone under.
That said, if you have always been thinking about picking up a book
for yourself or for a friend, but haven't gotten around to it yet, this
would be a great time to go ahead and order that book from Image, Dark
Horse, Top Shelf, or any of the other quality comic book publishers out
Thanks for all the help in keeping quality publishers alive.
